I can be dense sometimes.
My husband and I were watching the start of the movie Sky High on Star World right now — for the 20th time — when he turned to me and asked, “Do you know which other movie he’s from?” referring to the cute guy who plays Warren Peace.
Usually, I’m the one who would be asking him these questions.
Anyway, I had no clue where I have seen the actor before. He reminds me of Keanu Reeves but that’s about it.
That was when my husband said: “The Covenant”. And it immediately clicked. Of course, it’s him. He just had shorter hair. I’ve seen Sky High way too many times and I’ve seen The Covenant at least three times. It’s a wonder why I didn’t make the connection earlier.
Anyway, turns out his name is Steven Strait and he was also in 10,000 BC as D’Leh.
Unsurprisingly, he began as a teen model. He tried acting earlier but didn’t like it much. But after enrolling on an acting class, he was hooked.
Now, here is the interesting part. Steven also sings *raises one eyebrow* and his song One Thing Leads To Another made it into the soundtrack of the Sky High along with numbers from They Might Be Giants and The Click Five.
I’m listening to the song as I type this. Not bad. Not bad at all especially when I was expecting someone as good looking as he is to sound like a toad 😛 But really, he sounds pretty good!
Ok. Am going to check out the video clip to The Right Combination on youtube now. Later!
